So should I trash my mask of her from the 360 Tour? Haha, I wish U2 would just STFU and play music. This kind of thing is pretty embarrassing.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

  • Everything you know is wrong
Bob Geldof has returned his own freedom of the city in protest and has been blunt in his criticism of Aung San Suu Kyi.

If U2 choose to support and promote people like Aung San Suu Kyi I think they have to come out in condemnation when appropriate too.

They should write to the public to tell anyone who may have any of those silly masks they handed out knocking around to bin 'em....

What should I do with my An Tha mask?
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

A man was found hanged wearing a Basque, stockings, high heels, make up and a blond wig.  The police had removed the ASSK mask he'd been wearing to spare his family any embarrassment.

When U2 finally play Acrobat live, they should hand out An Tha masks.

U2 are not the only ones embarrassed by this, and hindsight's always a bitch. There was no way of knowing Suu Kyi would take her current stance on the Rohingya when everyone was campaigning for her release and democratic elections in Myanmar (which was the right thing to do). And the irony is, when everyone was campaigning for Suu Kyi's release, Bangladesh and China were forcing thousands of Rohingya across the border to Myanmar, doing it for years... and no one batted an eye at that, not one person in the media, because there was no Nobel Laureate or rock star to take pot shots at.

Anyway, I don't mean to bug ya. Play the blues, ffs, Edge!
